MyGrandfather was Edward Hayes, he was born in 1902 we believe in Wexford, he had one sister Margret Hayes who was born around 1898.His father was Michael Hayes believed to be born around 1867 in either Wexford or Limerick.We now know Michael Hayes's father was also Michael Hayes.Michael Hayes then married a Ellen or Helen Meany(or Meaney, Meeny,Meney) from Limerick(Edward and Margret's mother).Ellen or Helen (the names are hearsay) had connections with a glove factory in Limerick, and its believed thatwhen she married Michael there was a family rift and she moved to Wexford.
Ellen(Helen) died around 1908/9 aged around 44, at that time her husband Michael moved to Llanelli in South Wales (we believe he was a sailor and had visited the docks here) with his son Edward, he left Margret with relatives, but she also moved there later.
Edwards daughter (my Mother, born 1932) remembers visiting relatives of Michael Hayes? in Wexford with her aunt Margret as a young child. She mainly remembers a Sunny Sutton(not sure of spelling) who was a baker there.
We also believe Michael Hayes had a brother Patrick, Pat, or Paddy who may have emigrated to America.
I would be grateful for any help in tracing Ellen or Michael.
